You were the driven
The one who cleared the trail
And you were so busy
You had no time to fail
But somewhere in your choices
You left yourself behind
And in your shoes stepped someone
Whose goal was to survive

And you are the one
To paint and use the sky
And I have become
The chance that passed you by

You woke up one day
And tried on your old shoes
The ones you had given
The other you to use
And somewhere in your struggling
To lace them to the top
You broke through the holes in their worn soles
Where 40 years were lost

And you are the one
To paint and use the sky
And I have become
The chance that passed you by

You sit in silence
And listen to your heart
And you did not realize
That's where you end and start
And somewhere in your travels
You figured out today
That you are the goal that is worth the long haul
Not what you do or you say

And you are the one
To paint and use the sky
And I have become
The chance that passed you by (x2)
